Evaluation Kit for CMX703x and CMX713x



  • Evaluate both RF and baseband capabilities
  • On-board 460MHz VCO
  • On-board supply regulators from a single 5 Volt supply
  • Command and control by PC via the PE0003 EvKit Interface Card
  • Socketed EEPROM option for Function Image
  • On-board access to all target IC (CMX703x/CMX713x) signals, commands and data


  • For use with evaluation kits for CML’s new generation ICs, including FirmASIC

Supply Requirement:

  • 4.5 to 5.0 V Power Supply

The PE0201 Platform Evaluation Kit is designed to assist in the evaluation and application development of the CMX703x/CMX713x range of FirmASIC products.
The kit is in the form of a populated PCB comprising a CMX7130[1] (target) IC and appropriate supporting components and circuitry, including a 460MHz VCO operating in conjunction with one of the IC's on-chip synthesisers.

The board also incorporates all the necessary power-supply regulation facilities for operation from a single 5 volt supply, together with a number of board jumpers to enable various circuit arrangements to be effected.

The board is fitted with connectors allowing the PE0201 to be operated with a CML PE0003 Interface Card and associated PC GUI software, or by direct connection between the target IC C-BUS serial port and the user's µC development application or emulation system.

The CMX703x or CMX713x Function Image (FI) can be loaded, on power-up, directly into the on-board target IC using the PE0003 interface or the user's system.
Alternatively, it can be pre-loaded, separately, into the on-board EEPROM for automatic operation on power-up.

Please contact CML or your local distributor for more information.

Note: [1]The CMX7130 IC fitted to the PE0201 is a special evaluation IC with the architecture of all CMX703x/CMX713x series ICs.

Design Support Information

PE0201 Clock Input for 19.2MHz using a polling unterrupt. The CMX7031/41 FI-1.2x and 1.3x require 6.144MHz master clocks but the PE0201 only provides a 19.2MHz clock. This script uses interrupts. See also, 'set19-2_polled_IRQ.pes' (below) which polls the interrupt pin
